High School Panel on Drug Abuse Tonight

Join officials at the high school tonight in talking about prescription and other drug abuse.

Are you aware that prescription drug abuse is on the rise in Narragansett?

Have you heard about K2 and Spice?

What about Bath Salts?

Are you talking to your kids about this?

Come to the panel discussion on Prescription Drug Abuse and other drugs tonight at 7 p.m. in the Narragansett High School auditorium! 

The Narragansett Prevention Partnership has convened a panel of experts to provide parents with facts about the alarming increase in prescription drug abuse by teens in Narragansett and nationwide, and discuss strategies for reversing this trend. The panel will also discuss other scary emerging drug products like synthetic marijuana and bath salts that are known to be gaining favor among young people.

On board for the panel are Rhode Island Assistant Attorney General Jay Sullivan, pharmacist Dr. Jeffrey DeNuccio, South County Hospital Emergency Department Director of Nursing Laurie Browning, Narragansett High School Student Assistant Counselor Sarah Laidler, and Narragansett Police officers John Silveira and Mark Allsup.
